Self-treatment can be a very important component of achieving your goals. Just 5-minutes a day of self-care can help keep the pain away.

Implementing Self-CarE:

  • helps maintain progress made during MFR treatments.
  • aids in your progress during future treatments.
  • empowers you to take immediate action with flare-ups and/or if new pains emerge.

A self-care regimen helps you to better tune in to how your body is feeling and what works to calm it. The more we learn from what we are feeling, the deeper treatments can become yielding even better results.

Myofascial Release – Official YouTube Channel

This is the official MFR YouTube channel. This links to their Self Care Playlist. Outside of the Self Care Playlist, there are many other insightful videos worth watching, including interviews with John F. Barnes, PT.

Perth Myofascial Release YouTube Channel

A great resource for self-MFR education. These videos are made by Joni Edmund, PT is a wonderful MFR therapist who has worked at one of John Barne’s treatment centers.

A few things to remember:

  • You can always start with a”hammer” It serves a purpose, but for depth and lasting results always reach for your “flashlight”
  • Even just 5 minutes a day of self-treatment is better than nothing
  • It takes at least 5 minutes to effect change at a cellular level. Remember that you really are creating bioelectricity, biochemical/hormonal changes, and producing hyaluronic acid (cellular snot) that helps all the structures be gliding and fluid 

Love Note:

Please remember that you can always reach out for guidance if you need it. I am happy to send photos, facetime video, or roll around on the floor with you for a few minutes to answer any questions you may have about your self-care experience.
With Love,
